Newbie here.

The website has been great for bits and bobs, but there is one problem I am having difficulty diagnosing.

Car is a Citroen C4 2008 Diesel.

There is a crunching/creaky noise coming from the front left hand side of the car (passenger side). It has been in the garage several times and the mechanic cannot find where noise is coming from.

Got a service last week and they "tightened up" all the bolts in that region. The noise slightly went, however it soon came back. Drop link was also replaced.

One thought that it could be a problem with the suspension, but the noise doesnt seem to be connected with the suspension. When I go over large speed bumps the noise isnt always there, however, when i go over smaller bumps, or accelerate on the flat, it comes and goes.

Any thoughts?

I have been thinking it might be something in the pax air vent?
The diagram on this topic: i am missing item 6 & 4. Item 8 is then rather loose.http://c4owners.org/plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?46227

I have had the car for 4 years, but its only been the last 6 month this noise has started. Its getting a tad annoying

Probably anti roll bar bushes or links
